MLS Cup Preview

MLS Cup: New England Revolution vs. Houston Dynamo
Where: RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.
When: Sunday, November 18, at 12 p.m. EST
What to watch for: Scouting report By Kyle McCarthy, Boston Herald

This is the second straight pro-sports championship with a Boston area team in it. Despite the fact that the Revs are even less popular than the Bruins (though that gap is certainly closing), this is another huge step in the right direction for Boston sports. If the Revs win, it could be 2-for-2 so far for Boston in Pro-Sports Championships for the 2007-2008 seasons. The Revs are no strangers to success (this is their third straight MLS Cup appearance). But, they have never won the big one, losing in heartbreaking fashion the last two times out.

Special Note: According to the Boston Globe’s Mike Reiss, Owner Robert Kraft will be in attendance for BOTH the MLS Cup and the Patriots-Bills game Sunday night in Buffalo.
